The lion fell in love with the... lame?
Apparently Michelle Trachtenberg - yes, that chick from GossipGirl - could have been Bella Swan in the Twilight Saga O_o
According to The Fab Life:
Just think: it could have been Michelle Trachtenberg flailing around on that hospital bed with a demon baby rampaging through her insides. Taylor Lautner would have looked so confused! Even more so than usual! Us Weekly reports that the Weeds star spilled the deets yesterday as to how close she got to being Mrs. Edward Cullen.“There was definitely interest here and there because there’s only so few pale girls in Hollywood,” Trachtenberg said.Explained Michelle, “I’ve known [director] Catherine Hardwickesince the movie Thirteen. I was actually supposed to star in that, but I was on Buffy at the time.”Jeez, how many movies do we have to mentally recast you in, girl? All of them? Actually, we’ll just go ahead and start now. Wow, we can really see her in Arachnophobia!As for why Kristen Stewart ended up snagging the lead in the vampire epic, Michelle shrugged, “I guess schedules never worked out.”Just thinking about a Kristen-lessTwilight like being in an less-angsty alternate reality. What if instead of Kristen, it was Michelle who bounded with Rob Pattinson over all those late-night table reads and gluten-free bagels at craft services? What if?
Now I watched Buffy back in the day and I am not the biggest fan of this gal but does she sound somewhat full of herself or is it just me?
If she had been cast as Bella Swan, I just don't think I would have fallen so in love with the Saga's films :/
